I like the looks and the price but curious on quality and side doors.

Why not get them right from the source?

http://www.mutazu.com/products.php?c...=12&s=prod.php

Just FYI- the LN bags are some of the smallest bags Mutazu makes. Marketed for small bikes like a Honda Shadow or Harley Sportster. The 900 is built on a pretty stocky frame. The HL or RS bags might be a better fit for you. Just FYI. I have the HL's on my bike;

Thanks Romans, you are right they may be a little small. As far as the source goes, i would be better off getting from canadian source. I always seem to get nailed with customs charges etc. it would prob end up being about same $ and i may get them sooner. I like yours though. Guna look into those.

I have personal knowledge that RBG has incrediblely bad customer Service. I will never buy from them again. I
have never purchased from Muz but all I have heard is good things about them.

Good to know! Thx SirMickey. I have heard that about rbg from someone.
I am hesitant to get hard bags for the fear of scratching them. I pull into a tight spot in my garage and have bumped my leather bags now and then. No harm done. But sure love the looks of hard bags.

Im a big fan of hard bags, the added security no matter how small is very important to me and the wife.

If you order from the States, have the retailer send your stuff by post.... using FedEx or UPS usually involves a "Customs Processing Fee" which is a load of crap. Neither Canadian or US customs charge for handing or processing goods. Its just a $50 gouge by the carriers.

I am lucky that I'm in the States weekly and have my stuff sent to our US office and pick it up from there, my purchases (including my trailer) come with no tax, no freight charges and are 20 to 25% cheaper than here in Canada. I do how ever, give my local dealer the opportunity to give me a price. Some things he can come close to in price, others he can not.

I have had stuff mailed to my home from the States and had no issues with customs, nor provincial or federal taxes.

As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said

Just put some seafoam on a rag and wipe the tires down. It'll go anywhere.

Haha! Kidding. Actually that was sitting on a submerged boat ramp on a flooded river. Probably 3" or so deep there.
